How to Use This Book

This book contains information on how to use the Monitoring application, which is available through the Web-based System Manager user interface. This information is provided in the first two chapters. Thereafter, the book contains reference information that describes the underlying system, diagnostic information, commands and scripts, and tables of predefined conditions, expressions, and responses that are packaged with the application.

32-Bit and 64-Bit Support for the UNIX98 Specification

Beginning with Version 4.3, the operating system is designed to support The Open Group's UNIX98 Specification for portability of UNIX-based operating systems. Many new interfaces, and some current ones, have been added or enhanced to meet this specification, making Version 4.3 even more open and portable for applications.

At the same time, compatibility with previous releases of the operating system is preserved. This is accomplished by the creation of a new environment variable, which can be used to set the system environment on a per-system, per-user, or per-process basis.

To determine the proper way to develop a UNIX98-portable application, you may need to refer to The Open Group's UNIX98 Specification, which can be obtained on a CD-ROM by ordering Go Solo 2: The Authorized Guide to Version 2 of the Single UNIX(R) Specification, ISBN: 0-13-575689-8, a book which includes The Open Group's UNIX98 Specification on a CD-ROM.
